19+ Vocational Qualification (NVQS)

Work Based Learning Qualifications

St Vincent College offers a wide variety of Vocational qualifications for different roles within a range of vocational areas. Roles include: childcare practitioners, teaching assistants, health care support workers, business administration workers, customer service workers, information advice and guidance officers and managers, and those who work in a learning and development role or as assessors or quality assurers. These qualifications can help those starting out in their careers, or individuals already in a career, up to senior manager level.

Vocational Qualifications (NVQs)

Vocational Qualifications allows us to offer qualifications at different levels which can be undertaken in the workplace, in the classroom or as workshops, depending on the level undertaken and job role/experience of the learner.

One of the benefits of this type of qualification is that they assess your ability to do the job, which makes them suitable to take whilst in work. A key part of the course will include demonstrating that you can do certain work-related tasks. A voluntary work placement or employment in an appropriate setting is a Mandatory requirement.

During the course you will work with an assessor to create a portfolio of evidence (where you build evidence of the work you have completed). You will also be assessed by observation, where an assessor watches you work and confirms that you can do specific tasks to the appropriate level of skill required.
